Cautionary Advice …

Acid, alkaline, and neutral designations of ash residue is only one factor (although an important one) of acid-alkaline equilibrium.

For example, science has yet to explain why sometimes acidity is increased, yet the number of acid molecules is decreased.

Fatigue pH is an example of this.

Using ash residues as an absolute basis for pH homeostasis is the same as using glycemic index without factoring in glycemic load and glycemic response.


Acidifying and alkalizing agents are routinely added to our food.

Acidifying agents include …

ammonium chloride, monoammonium phosphate, phosphoric acid, glycerol, butanol, heptanol, unsaturated fatty alcohols, etc.

Alkalizing agents include …

sodium bicarbonate, sodium thiosulfate, ammonium acetate, etc.


What?!? Coffee is NEUTRAL?

Yes, 99% of all foods are acidic on the north side of the mouth.

The leftover ash is what determines acidity or alkalinity.

The “acidity” of coffee is an industry term.

Coffee “acidity” means …

“Acidity is the bright, dry sensation that enlivens the taste of coffee. Without acidity coffee is dull and lifeless. Acidity is not a sour sensation, which is a taste defect, nor should it be excessively drying or astringent, though it sometimes is.”

    The growth of cancer is an anabolic and acidic/YANG process, while the metastasis of cancer is a catabolic and alkaline/YIN process.–e-books.php#Acidify-or-Die

    Chicken brooding INCANDESCENT RED LIGHT photo-rejuvenation works better than red laser of LED lights for wound and burn healing, skin rejuvenation, mitochondrial and collagen stimulation, acne, rosacea, poison remediation, etc.

    Broad spectrum red light therapy is the highest choice (570-1300 nanometers) —> a 250-watt incandescent red brooder heat lamp bulb.

    We prefer the GE bulb over the Philips bulb. The red paint melted off the Philips bulb.

    What do you call a chicken crossing the road?
